About Photographer Nissim Krispil

The images archive shown here is courtesy of Nissim Krispil, writer, explorer and anthropologist, specialist in spices and herbs in use of the land of Israel.

Nissim wrote many books and articles researching the land of Israel including the monumental encyclopedia - "The plants gazette" - five volumes encompassing all medical plants, spices and usefulness of the Land of Israel as well as the " Maimonides medical herbs".

Nissim made a research trip to North Africa countries which lasted about 10 years in the most austere conditions. Impressions from the trip are documented in thousands of photos, some of which are shown here.
